Nexus 7 followup

The Nexus tablet is getting more and more interesting for me as I come up with additional uses.

Today I installed DHCP and Bind on it, and am thinking about Cobbler, too.

The idea is having the Nexus as infrastructure core and with the tools to bootstrap the rest of my systems.

Power would come via an active USB hub, if it fails, the nexus can still power its gadgets till it runs out. That way it’s i.e. possible to determine if power or all networking failed and still alert.

And after a disaster crash you’d have a install server that is ready to bring the core systems back up.
